Thank you for your kind words, we hope that we can create a love for the outdoors in him. So far it seems to be working! Every time he seems a little stressed out we try to put him on our backs and head out for an hour or so and he seems to love it!

Its free, requires very little equipment, baby's love to sleep whilst out (which means mum and dad can actually have whole conversations with each other!!!), its great for your health (especially if you include a few big hills!) and...

For those of you who have visited my blog before, you will know that I am a fan of good coffee. I have mainly been using pre-ground beans which give a good flavour but deteriorate quickly once opened, which is not good for trips lasting more than a day. A... Continue reading

Do remember loving the crispy outside and the gooey inner core when we roasted them as kids! The Banana boat sounds good, my uncle did something similar with banna chocolate and rum! Ash
